Meghan McCain Calls Out Stormy Daniels: 'Seems Like Publicity Stunt'
My mom doesn't understand why Stormy Daniels is in the news. We actually had this conversation at brunch on Sunday. An ACTUAL conversation. This isn't one of those leftists "my seven-year-old said to me..." setups. I'm the political guy. I'm supposed to have the answers. But I'm honestly confused what the actual issue is. Other than knowing stories like sleeping with porn stars are why I wrote in "Harambe" for POTUS in 2016.
Meghan McCain appears to feel the same way. I don't want to say she is making The View must-see TV (see Meghan McCain Spanks James Comey: ‘I think he wants to co-host The View’ and Video: Meghan McCain Points Out Intolerance Toward Conservatives on ‘The View’). Because it's still The View. But I'd call it must-see clips people must-see on YouTube. McCain spoke for all of us. That this Stormy Daniels thing reeks of a publicity stunt.
It seems like a publicity stunt on some level. I think yesterday — because you didn’t have anything to do with the case — it seemed a little like you were just trying to get attention. I understand that you’re being sued by our president, but it does seem like you’re benefitting a lot.
You’ve gone on your Make America Horny Again tour,” McCain continued. “I’m sure you’re making a lot of money — no disrespect. I hadn’t heard your name until all of this had happened and now you’re literally live on The View giving an entire interview with us. So it has been beneficial for your career.
Daniels said she didn't name the tour and didn't like the name. Though not enough to say anything. Or not enough to not collect money from it.
Though this part is my favorite.
“Yes, there’s a lot of publicity but I didn’t do it for that because this isn’t what I want to be known for.”
YOU. ARE. A. PORN. STAR.
She doesn't want to be known for this. DP is fine. Girl-on-girl, bring it. Being the canvas for various body fluids works too. But being involved in season 2 of Trump Does America is apparently where she draws the line.
To be clear, I don't know what happened between her and Michael Cohen and the alleged threats. I realize that some have a knee-jerk response anytime a woman accuses anyone of harassment to say that she wants something. Especially Trump fanbois. Stormy Daniels deserves a chance to make her case and deserves a chance for justice. Fine. Okay? Okay.
However, I can't be alone in saying the way she is going about it - a tabloid press tour with her lawyer by her side - is the best way to go about it getting this justice she says she wants.
Also, did I miss something, or was this affair between her and Trump consensual? This isn't a case of a powerful man raping a woman or harassing her, is it? Was it an alleged consensual affair Trump wanted to be covered up? I just want to be clear on the details here.
